I think I was excited for John McTeigue’s THE RAVEN from the moment the very first set photos popped up. John Cusack looked perfect for Edgar Allen Poe; I was sold no matter what it was about. Once the plot was released (below), I was even more pumped and now I can’t wait, I want to see this right now!
The other day we gave you a look at the first TV Spot, and today the second one has shown up. It is another really exciting 30 seconds; the film certainly looks like it will be a good one! Check it out below!
The macabre and lurid tales of Edgar Allan Poe are vividly brought to life - and death – in this stylish, gothic thriller starring John Cusack as the infamous author. When a madman begins committing horrific murders inspired by Poe’s darkest works, a young Baltimore detective (Luke Evans) joins forces with Poe in a quest to get inside the killer’s mind in order to stop him from making every one of Poe’s brutal stories a blood chilling reality. A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues, which escalates when Poe’s love (Alice Eve, She’s Out of My League) becomes the next target. Intrepid Pictures’ The Raven also stars Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges) and Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Faster).
Catch THE RAVEN on April 27th, nevermore!
